Enjoy the tranquillity of the Snowdonia National Park from this peaceful rural site.

Our Bala Club campsite boasts an idyllic rural location just outside the eastern boundary of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and six miles north of the lake after which it is named. Surrounded by amazing scenery, Bala campsite is the ideal base for exploring the attractions of north Wales.

The pretty and secluded 50 pitch site is level and well maintained with a good range of facilities including toilets, showers, laundry, a small children’s play area and a small dog walk. A short drive away, the town of Bala offer a variety of shops, a petrol station and places to eat. Sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and fishing are all possible on Bala Lake and there are good walks and cycle routes from here too. Bala Lake Railway and the Ffestiniog Railways are great ways to take in the local scenery.

Less than an hour’s drive from Bala campsite is Snowdon, Wales’ highest peak. Scale its heights on foot or catch the train to the summit.

Local resorts with good sandy beaches include Prestatyn, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Harlech, Barmouth Fairbourne and Aberdovey. 

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This campsite is small with a lot of character.

This review is for Bala

This campsite is small with a lot of character. It has a small but adequate safe area to toilet dogs. The managers were brilliant. Fantastic sense of humor, making you feel welcome. Especially Bodger, their puppy. How I miss him now we are home. Their local knowledge was great. Although most attractions are between 9 and 30 miles away, this did not detract from our holiday enjoyment Wifi connectivity good but TV reception poor. Good excuse to play games.

We have just returned from a long weekend away staying at the Bala site.

This review is for Bala

We have just returned from a long weekend away staying at the Bala site. We planned to climb Snowdon at the start of the summer holidays and needed somewhere to stay that was within easy reach. We booked a ready tent and it suited our needs perfectly. It was very well equipped and we just brought bedding from home. The site is lovely and the wardens were very friendly. We had a great time and would definitely come back in the future.
